Hi, there. My name is Dave and I try to play the ukulele. I started last summer and am having a ball playing. I play, therefore I am happy.
The ukulele has got to be the happiest instrument. Of all “real” instruments, excepting the harmonica, it’s probably the least expensive (if you buy an inexpensive one).
It’s truly a folk instrument and a great accompaniment to the voice. It’s easy to play and you can pack it almost anywhere.
I did a blog before and it sucked. (See?) It sucked because it was nothing but lame crap that happened to me. Ukuleles are something I love and have a passion for. So I hope I don’t suck at this blog too.
I also play guitar. I never got too good at it. It wasn’t for trying. I could play a lot of chords but never did well at solo or lead. So I called myself a rhythm guitarist. Pete Townshend Joe Strummer were also rhythm guitars players, but I am certainly not either of them.
So here we go.
